GRUB and File System consistency check.

I have one mystery that I can't find an answer to. I see that most distros keep kernel/initramfs images on the same partition as the root file system. Isn't this unsafe in a scenario where there is a power cut and then next time when booting, GRUB will be reading kernel/initramfs from an inconsistent file system?

Is it FS drivers in GRUB that are responsible to replay that FS journal or a system builder should provide its own ad-hoc solution for ensuring FS consistency before GRUB attempts to read from it?
